    I don't care about the Apocrypha, I was asking those learned brethren who know its history, why the address to King James was removed?... Apparently you don't know... I want to hear from someone who does... Brother Glen:)

    My apologies I guess you do and I read the article... It doesn't matter to me I was just asking... I'm satisfied that wife's Mothers KJV has it, so it is at hand if I need to read it... I had another question to ask about the KJV but after thinking about it, it doesn't matter either... Brother Glen:)

    I think many would have a surprise if they could get a hold of the original 1611 edition, as has that translator forward, and the Apocrapha in it!

    I have something I received from my stepfather when he passed. I'm thinking it may be some sort of Eastern Orthodox cathechesm. (Spelling?) His grandparents immigrated from one of the Slavic countries before Russia combined everything into the old Soviet Union.

    It comes in a pair (his and hers?) It is very beautifully illustrated, though I can't read a word of it. I have often thought of trying to figure out what it is.

    I now have switched to a Ryrie Study Bible after saying years ago on this thread that it's note were too basic, which I now have totally changed my mind about.

    I love the layout. The Ryrie has it's cross references in the outer margins rather than a center column and let me tell you it is very nice on the eyes and is very aesthetically pleasing. It also has wider margins and plenty of room for taking notes (Which Ryrie in the introduction encourages you to do.)

    Ryrie's notes are not super in depth but they are often very helpful. I ignore him when he comments about textual issues and criticizes the KJV's readings such as the longer ending of Mark 16 and the comma in 1 John 5:7.

    There are well written outlines for each book and the points and subpoints of the outline are found throughout the text which makes it easier to see and remember the progressions of each book, they also are well alliterated and could be helpful in preaching and teaching outlines.

    Ryrie was evangelical, fundamental, and dispensational in his theology and his study bible has an excellent systematic theology outline. I suspect that the outline is the same outline Ryrie uses in his full length systematic theology, it is really helpful and has some really great thoughts and I am certain I will make use of it in future teaching and preaching. And Ryrie happens to view the requirements for salvation similar to myself (He rejects Lordship Salvation)

    Some have aversions to study bible's but I truly am thankful for this gem that I have found and wish I had gotten one sooner. I highly recommend the Ryrie Study Bible for anyone wanting to study the word of God.

    Buy enough Bibles now to last you and your family the rest of your lives. The time is coming when the Bible we have will be seen as full of hate and responsible for the supposed troublesome beliefs of those 'evangelicals', Most likely it will be edited to the degree that it no longer reflects the Word of God.

    If any think that it can't happen here, just look at what is happening now.

    I use the Old Scofield Study Bible.

    When a new Christian I had a KJV Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible but it was hard to understand the text so I dropped it like a cold potato and went to a lot of other version's and study bibles. One that sticks out is a red leather RSV Harper Study Bible. Then in the early 90's got a Kirkbride Thompson Chain Reference '84 edition of the NIV. Later developed in my thinking that notes can often be controversial and easily believed because they are in the Bible aren't they? So the Thompson has been my favorite, while it is a form of "notes", being topical, with other articles and helps they only get in the way when you can't get a complete or at least satisfactory answer. Now since I have changed versions again and font size is a larger issue what I need is large/giant font or at least thickly inked letters, (Comfort Print is helpful), with a good concordance and substantial cross references.

    If you are thinking about getting a new premium leather bible this site has very good customer service and answers inquiries for various versions:
    Home - evangelicalbible.com

    You can at least get an idea of what is currently available.
